It's rare that I see a collection off the catwalk and think it looks more appealing than it did when it was shown on the models. But that seems to have happened with Christopher Kane's delicate, scalloped Spring / Summer pieces. On the catwalk, I thought they were pretty and unusual, but I didn't think they were his best work, and I wasn't sure they'd translate well to real life. But having seen the dress on the right emblazoned across Net a Porter's homepage, I actually oohed out loud. It look amazing. And when I checked out the full range available on the site, those oohs continued. What a refreshing change from Herve Leger bandage dresses and little strapless numbers in jewel colours. Here's hoping a brave celeb picks one of these up soon...because I know I can't stretch to upwards of £2,600 right now!
